Hello all,



I recently bought a much (un)loved TW125 and after nosing around the forum for a couple of weeks, decided it was only polite to join and say thank you all for the fantastic wealth of experience and information available here.



The bike is currently in bits waiting for me to get it to the powdercoater, some cleaning and then rebuilding...



As I bought it:



Engine is now out, but these are the last pics I took:





Where I'd like it to go with it...





I'll start a build thread in the customization section when I start putting it all back together.



kind regards from Brendan the African Pommie (aka Pizzadude or the Prawn)

I'm guessing you are from the uk ( the number plate on the car gives it away haha ) where abouts? i'm in warrington, just about to purchase new lights all round, and start the modding process too.

Welcome to the best forum on the web - great to have you with us. Love the naked look of that bike, although it doesn't exactly fit my needs.

Nice, I'll be stripping down my 2009 this winter to build it up into a custom bike.



So, how was the tear down? Pretty easy? I'm hoping I can get it down to the frame in one weekend with lots of picture taking.

... a fellow mud islander! I'm over in Warwick, Jimmytanko (what lights you going for?)



PhatRat - I'm from Zimbabwe originally, but moved over here in '98.



The bike was exceptionally quick to tear down: it only took a couple of weekends as I was working on the other bike (an Aprilia RS125) to get it back on the road and through it's MOT. I try to work in a logical order - I tear down in sections (ie. seat and plastics) separating the nuts and bolts etc for each section into old plastic noodle pots (and if I'm really organised, I even label 'em too). I also photograph each connector along the wiring harness and where it's going/ what it's attached to/ where it's located.



A bit anally retentive, but it makes the build up process very quick.

Bart, I've also just noticed that I made the photobucket album public, so you can always click on one of the top photos and browse through the album if you happen to miss something on your tear down (assuming the 200 is basically the same as the 125)
